Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels. It is usually associated with a build-up of fatty deposits inside the arteries and increased risk of blood clots. It can be associated with damage to arteries in organs such as the brain, heart, kidney and eyes. Some types of CVD include coronary heart disease, strokes and aortic disease. Some of the main causes of CVD are smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure (NHS, 2016).

These diseases can be extremely dangerous and lead to permanent damage or even death, therefore, it is vitally important for laboratories to be confident in their analyser’s ability to accurately diagnose and monitor the risk of these diseases.

Featured Analytes

HDL Cholesterol

High-Density Lipoproteins (HDL) are one of the major classes of plasma lipoproteins. HDL is often referred to as ‘good cholesterol’ because it transports cholesterol from the tissues of the liver for removal from the body. High levels of HDL can indicate a lower risk of developing heart disease.

Apolipoprotein A-1

Apolipoprotein A-1 is one of the main protein forms found in High Density Lipoproteins (HDL). The chief role of Apolipoprotein A-1 is in the activation of lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) and the capture and removal of free cholesterol from extra hepatic tissue. Studies have shown that there is an inverse relationship between Apolipoprotein A-1 and coronary artery disease (CAD).
